Splines and Bezier: adding nodes

Post by Angelos »

Do you think will be possible adding new nodes or continuing splines and Bezier?


PS I think I have understood one difficulty with Bezier in iPocket Draw: the lenght of the lines doesn’t match the distance you trace with pencil. As a result becomes difficult to managing the curve.

Adding new nodes yes because I do it in RealCADD when a node is dragging with the key "option" or "alt" down.
But I don't know how do this in iPocket Draw without physical keyboard.
2x tap on the node to be duplicated?

Yes, or tap with one finger on screen and adding with pen.

About the lenght of Bezier?

Constrained seems to work correctly in beta.

Angelos,

I don't understand what you mean for Bézier.

For the other point, remember that iPocket Draw works also on iPhone and that all iPad's users don't have a pencil.

Good for beta version, the validation by Apple was fast.

Cordialement.

Yes but I don’t see a problem with the pencil.

Do you mean the calculated length displayed in the attribute pallet or the length of the curve drawn?
I don't understand.

Angelos,

In iPocket Draw, when you create a Bézier curve, you don't have access to the control points.
Only after the curve is created, you can modify the control points.
Therefore to create a Bézier, it is exactly the same than to create a polygon.
